Default Great idea for epic munchkin!

I hope this is an appropriate place to share my ideas for the future of munchkin.. This may have already been discussed, but I think it would be so cool if you released an expansion of just class/race and class/race enhancers that had their epic abilities printed directly on them. Perhaps there could be enough to replace all of the class/race cards already available. What do you think? Could this happen? It would make epic play much easier than looking through my printed rules all the time.

That seems like an awful lot of cards to print for a fairly limited audience; most people don't play Epic or don't play it very often, in our experience. Not saying "no, never," but right now we don't have anything like this on our schedule.

Hm. That's unfortunate. At least you know there's an audience out there for it! Even if it's a small one.

I deleted a post that was steering dangerously close to suggesting card ideas, which is a serious no-no on the forums. Please stay away from discussing an exact card mix for this or any other set, and DEFINITELY don't suggest new cards. Thanks.

1/2 way down the first post.

Hum...ok-

There's a card submission area for Munchkin elsewhere... so It's not ok here.
(off to edit other post...*sigh*...ya'll are too fast you got that one already too)

I swear I read the rules too... maybe I missed some.

OK- synopsis

There's Just short of 100 things that could be Epic and that would be a whole deck- just to remind players what can be Epic and what the powers are- and that's only one card per type (class or race or mojo...) -either the printing would need X sets of 'nearly 100' per set, or everyone would have to share...

Still very interested in a gameboard for all 20 levels.... with it's own cards and the Epic reminders.

(If this is still too 'close' please also send a PM too- The list was generated form the Epic muchkin PDF- that was bad too?- I see now I don't recall reading about card suggestions *whoops*)

I did the math. And just for the original fantasy munchkin, if you replaced all race, class, and race/class enhancers, it would be 103 cards. (109 if you added 6 epic human cards [six for the max amount of players])

Sure I understand that it would be too big of a project for every version. But for the original, this seems like a reasonable expansion. Then after this expansion, any future race/class cards released could be updated with the epic rules printed on them as well.

I'm not suggesting reminder cards, rather replacement cards. They would have all the original text, AND the epic feats.
